2 Ingredient Incredibly Delicious Dessert

If you stopped by today to find a heart-healthy recipe to go along with the “gettin’ off the couch” theme we’ve had on the site lately, you need to keep on scrolling….’cause this ain’t it!

On the other hand,  if you’re interested in quick, easy, and scrumptious, then you’re in the right place ’cause this recipe is all about minimal time investment with maximum taste results.

I don’t have an official name for all this creamy, crunchy goodness, but my kids always call it “The Cool Whip & Cookie Stuff” (pretty much covers it). 

So, without further ado….

2 Ingredient Incredibly Delicious Dessert (a.k.a. The Cool Whip & Cookie Stuff)


8 oz. container of frozen Cool-Whip, thawed

1 package of Oreos


Place the Oreos in a gallon sized Ziploc-type bag.

Zip the bag shut. (Yeah…you don’t want to forget that. Don’t ask me how I know.)

Use a wooden kitchen mallet (or the bottom of a glass) to crush the Oreos. Don’t crush them completely…you’ll want some bigger pieces too. Trust me.

Dump all the Cool-Whip into a large bowl.

Pour the crumbled Oreos into the Cool-Whip.

Stir it all together.

Now…the hard part. Don’t eat it yet. Cover the bowl with some plastic wrap and put it in the frig for at least an hour. This gives the cookies enough time to soften (don’t worry, they won’t be too soft…they’ll be a “just right” kinda crunchy).

This scrumptious dessert isn’t something we have very often at all, but it’s usually requested for birthdays and the end-of-the-school-year party. And it also works great for those times when I need to bring a dessert to a pot-luck, but haven’t had time to bake anything. 

Got any ideas for a name for our previously unnamed dessert? I’d love to hear your suggestions!

    We do something similar with vanilla pudding and oreos. I’ll have to try the cool whip version!

    That is a definate “will try” recipe! I’d venture to say you could use any cookie in the mix? and since oreo has several versions (mine being the watermelon) of icing flavors and colors…you now have several flavors you could make!

      I like the way you think, Cheri! 🙂

    I made this for my 9 year old and we both fell in love with it! He said it tasted like the Oreo McFlurry he enjoys from McDonalds! But this is much cheaper! And oh so easy! You can’t get much easier than mixing all the ingredients together and chilling in the frig! This is the bomb! One warning…it’s rich! So plan on sharing! 🙂
